November 11 Racing Tips and Odds - A Different Kind is different gravy for McCain at Sedgefield

Planet Sport are frying to Sedgefield where chip man Donald McCain has a combined 25 length winner in his past two runs. Forget salt and vinegar, this one is different gravy on Thursday, November 11.

We start at Market Rasen with a runner that is a real mouthful for commentators but that can be sweet for punters. Alan King's five-year-old is a sticky proposition for her opponents.

1.05 Market Rasen - Moonamacaroona

Moonamacaroona can be considered a little unlucky for shipping her rider when evens favourite last time out over the course.

That was the first run for Alan King's five-year-old for 205 days so can be considered an unfortunate warm up for Thursday's test.

King keeps Moonamacaroona to the same distance and the Flemensfirth mare has a good chance of making amends after previous wins at Warwick and Chepstow.

The horse named after the sweet treat can show the requisite bite under Tom Cannon.

Nicky Henderson's Indian Glory has only run three times and can expect to get a little closer in this small horse field at a reasonable price.

3.15 Market Rasen - Near Kettering

For all you fans of Northamptonshire geography, Near Kettering is named as a direct answer to his dam, who is called Where's Broughton.

Now that we've got that trivia out the way there's the small matter of a last time out win at Carlisle for Sam England's charge.

The seven-year-old kept on well at Carlisle and the step up in trip should be well within range.

Jonathan England gets the leg up for his wife Sam and Near Kettering is ready to put little old Northamptonshire on the map.

Olly Murphy's Macho Mover looks to be hitting a bit of form and can give Near Kettering the most to think about.

12.37 Sedgefield - A Different Kind

Donald' McCain's A Different Kind heads to Sedgefield in the hunt for a hat-trick.

The Doyen gelding has won on his last two starts at the North East track, prevailing by a combined 25 lengths.

Top Northern jumps jockey Brian Hughes was in the saddle for both runaway wins and he retains the ride.

A Different Kind can live up to his name with a next level performance here.

Irish raider Charles Byrnes can put up a fight with Kendancer, a winner in August at Ballinrobe.

3.50 Sedgefield - Lucky Robin

Brian Ellison's nine-year-old is hardly consistent but does have a liking for Sedgefield.

His last two runs at the course has seen a second and a win but he tanked last time out at Ludlow.

Back at his favourite track Sedgefield, Lucky Robin can swoop into a better position than his odds suggest and he is only a peck away now from his last winning mark of 107.

We're not quite at Christmas yet but this Robin can show his head in a pleasing fashion.

Donald McCain's daughter Abbie can lump top weight round Sedgefield on Zafar and give Lucky Robin a scare.

2.02 Taunton - Catch The Cuban

West Country trainer Colin Tizzard is hitting real form and sends Catch The Cuban to local track Taunton with a live chance.

Still awaiting a win this year, Tizzard will be desperate to get this five-year-old's head in front for very patient connections.

A second last time out at Wincanton was close but no cigar for Catch The Cuban but he can go one further after being clipped by a couple of furlongs in trip.

Brendan Powell is the man doing the steering and he'll be Havana good time if Catch The Cuban wins.

Admiral's Sunset has won twice in recent months under Page Fuller and will do a good job of attempting to Catch The Cuban at a price.

2.32 Taunton - Huelgoat

Another West Country giant Paul Nicholls pops to Taunton with a solid chance of victory.

Huelgoat is a French import trying to find his feet in the UK but with potential.

A second last time out at Exeter was not perhaps the British debut Nicholls would have hoped for when finishing 10 lengths behind Colonial Empire.

But a subsequent wind operation can tease out some improvement, as can leading jockey Harry Cobden being given the ride.

Funnily enough, 10 lengths was the winning margin for Huelgoat's last win in France and Nicholls will hope that the four-year-old gets back on track here.

Nine Nine Nine can put in an arresting performance for Nigel Twiston-Davies, having placed second last time out at Fakenham.
